In the midst of this year being recognized as the year of rookies, a fresh boy group is about to create their own name in the KPOP industry and to start a legend. That said boy band is named The Legend who debuted in July 2014.

The Legend is under JK Space who successfully introduced to the public on 9th of July 2014 having their debut single with a title, “Left Out,” after revealing its music video on Youtube one day before. And honestly as a debut song, “Left Out” was a great one to catch people’s attention. It has good arrangement of music and pretty majestic on ears. As to continue their journey being a rookie idol group, The Legend released a mini album in October called “Out of My Mind”. In line to their activities for the recent album, another music video had been uploaded on October 29th. Its title is “Lost” which is one of the songs in the mini album along with “Nawa Gatdamyeon” and “I Wanna Know.”

The boys surely had captured some fangirls and probably fanboys’ hearts within months of existing as a band who eventually called themselves as Heroes. But, The Legend doesn’t only look good as a group; each member holds his own charms as well. The Legend consists of 5 members and these boys had to undergo training for four years before tasting the sweetness of successful debut. These five charming members are known having their stage names such as Listen, Roi, Jaehyuk, Lito and Changsun. You now like to get to know them? Read on!

It may be kind of confusing but Listen is a stage name for Lee Seung Tae. He is one of the vocals Legend can be really proud of. He has a very interesting voice that can turn the fans on. Listen is the oldest member born on October 9, 1989 yet Legend doesn’t have a particular leader so Listen can’t be totally considered as one. Another member and following Listen by age is Roi; or Qin Fen known for his real name. He was born on August 31, 1991 and a vocalist, too. This good-looking guy has actually a blood of Chinese. No need to mention a stage name for this next member because Ryu Jaehyuk is using his real name already. Jaehyuk was born on 19th of September 1991 and has the role of another vocalist in Legend. Now, it’s time for Lito. He was born on July 3, 1994 having this real name as Kim Minjun. He is responsible to rap for the group and once admitted that he’s been writing rap for so long. Such a wonderful guy with enthusiasm to the field he entered. Lastly, meet the maknae/youngest in the group, Lee Changsun. He was born in the same year as Lito but is still consider as real maknae since he was born on July 5; the difference is only two days. He is again a vocalist of the group who has a separate love for cooking.

Despite of new groups who debuted early this year and who are still about to debut, The Legend is on to show more about them and prove what they got. Sure, they aren’t afraid to meet the fans across the world when they can speak Chinese, Korean and Japanese fluently. As time passes by, let’s see where their dream and talents can take them. As for Heroes, continue to support this rookie group to count more and more years that will come not only for this group but also for the whole fandom.
